The common name dandelion came from French dent-de-lion, meaning lion’s tooth is given to members of the genus, and like other members of the Asteraceae family, they have very small flowers collected together into a composite flower head. In several European languages the plant, or at least its parachute ball stage, is named after the popular children’s pastime of blowing the parachutes off the stalk: Pusteblume German for “blowing flower”, soffione – Italian for “blowing”, dmuchawiec – Polish, derived from the verb “blow”, одуванчик – Russian, derived from the verb “blow”. Dandelions – first flowers of spring are also an inspiration for Korean artist Bak Eun-ra.
